For property owners throughout Lynchburg, eminent domain proceedings allow the government and any authorized companies to take away their private property in order to convert it for public use.

We can help you fight a sale or get a fair price. Call the Lynchburg eminent domain lawyer at A. R. Pike Law Firm for help with these kinds of issues. We can help you understand the laws and how you can use them to obtain the best possible outcome for your situation.
Why Is My Property Being Taken Away?
There are many different reasons for why a government can enforce eminent domain as a way to deprive you of your property. When you oppose their offer for your property, the proceedings move toward what is called condemnation. Here, the government will argue the price you will be paid for your property. An experienced real estate attorney can help you ensure you are being treated fairly throughout these proceedings.
You may be subject to eminent domain for projects such as:
- Public schools
- Parks or recreation centers
- Military bases
